Striving to live in concert with nature.
Dr. Amy moved to Arizona in 2008 to pursue a degree in naturopathic medicine. Since then she has learned to harness the healing power of nature by focusing on the things we can control. She uses food, nutrients, herbs and physical movement as medicine. She aims to avoid using pharmaceutical medications as much as possible and she opts for natural therapies when appropriate. In most cases, she trusts the healing power of nature more than human-made medicines. She has been amazed by the progress that can be achieved when people provide their bodies with the environment and ingredients needed to heal. She loves helping people improve their lives with simple solutions.
